to pyongyang. press articles hail the fact that china in anticipation of the recent launch had begun inspecting cargo on north korean ships in search of contraband. the question this raises is why has chi gnat not been inspecting north korean ships since 2006 as called for in a u.n. resolution, reinforced by another resolution in 2009. if u.n. member states would only enforce the sanctions currently on the books, north korea would be unable to ignore the swer national community and the civilized world. the time for coordinated international action is now. the time, in fact, is long overdue. with that, mr. speakering i reserve the balance of our time. the speaker pro tempore: the squom from florida reserves. the gentleman from california, mr. berman is recognized. mr. berman: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in strong support of h.con.res. 145 as amended and yield myself such time as i may consume. sproy the gentleman is recognized. mr. berman: i would like to thank the sponsor of this legislation, ms. ros-lehtinen, for her leadership on this issue and her work in addressing the north korean threa

it comes to who is helping them, there is mixed reports. the assumption is china does, but did iran? >> there is all sorts of speculation of who is helping who. north korea has been a big proliferator, but they haven't been successful in producing their own long range rocket. let's make no mistake for officials who said this had nothing to do with launching a weather satellite. they consider this a test of a long range ballistic missile that would ultimately have the capability of carrying a nuclear warhead to the west coast of the united states. u.s. sources tell us that north korea is sitting on dozens and dozens of nuclear weapons. the big question is, have they been able to miniaturize them to fit on a rocket yet. that is still unclear. >> thank you, sir. next, how democrats are trying to pressure republicans by a little politics in the fiscal cliff talks. check this out. >> i think ultimately the federal government shall set forth a uniform pattern of registration in voting so that no citizen will have a problem at this point. >> we are opening up the nbc archives as "meet the
